Many experts consider it the best tennis court surface, and it’s a favorite with leading resorts, universities and top tournaments worldwide.

You can even check out a variety of color combinations on the Har-Tru website before you decide.

Do Different Sports Require Different Surfaces?

Some clients, including clubs and universities, need sports-specific surfaces, while residential clients often want a multipurpose court surface that can be used for everything from pickleball to basketball. Since a regulation basketball court requires a longer length, clients often choose a half-basketball court on a full size tennis court. This configuration leaves plenty of room for pickleball since you can get four pickleball courts on a standard tennis court.
Can I DIY A Home Sports Court Resurfacing?
If you’re an avid tennis or pickleball player, you know how important it is to get the surface and lines right. An even surface and accurate lines enhance the level of play, even on a residential court. Your residential sports court is a significant asset, and resurfacing is an investment. So it makes sense to work with a professional team. A professional resurfacing includes:

  • Preparing your existing court
  • Clearing dirt, debris and plant growth followed by a power wash
  • Patching any cracks
  • Sanding to remove rough or uneven spots
  • Multiple coats of the acrylic surface
  • Professional court lines with a line-marking machine followed by a UV-resistant topcoat
